Packing List

This list is born out of twenty years of forgetting things every time I went on a trip. Each time I have forgotten something I have added it to this list. Now I almost never forget anything! Except once–I forgot the list–then I had to start again. 🙁 Now that it’s on my website I’ll never have to make it again!
